Flower MOUNTAIN was born thanks to the encounter of Mr Keisuke Ota from Tokyo and Mr Yang Chao from Beijing, who soon discovered they shared a passion for mountain trekking, music, footwear and more. Their friendship brought them on trips together to the "Fuji Rock Festival" on Mount Fuji in Japan and to the development of a shoe that was functional, healthy and beautiful with the FM signature to tell this story. In 2015, together with Fedrica Wang, they first founded the "Dandelion mountaineering associa-tion" and then "Breath Design co. Ltd Tokyo" and started working on their first collection. Soon after retailers like "Shoes Bar Beijing" and XYZ from Tokyo embraced the project and the public responded with enthusiasm. In 2016 the team of Breath Design decided to join forces with Shoes Bar and Falc of Civitanova Marche-Italy- to take the project to the next level and bring it to the international markets. This new team, has also a strong technical and production know how based in Italian tradition, an experienced retail and marketing team and an international distribution network.
